Relax, Tribe Fans. We Are Going To Be Just Fine.

The Cleveland Indians have only just started their season, and I want Tribe fans to enjoy the ride as it happens.

Relax, Tribe Fans. We Are Going To Be Just Fine.

Far too often I've been seeing a lot of panicking going on regarding the Indians. People on social media with hot takes left and right, up and down, side to side, and in a 360 degree angle. Pretty much anywhere and everywhere you look, you can find some kind of negativity or panic loaded remark being made.

I have only a couple words to sum up what this article is going to be about: please calm down. If Corey Kluber has a bad game, people start saying he's a trash pitcher. If our offense is struggling, suddenly we suck. If a hitter strikes out, that hitter shouldn't be on the team anymore. Now, I'm not talking to the people that get frustrated and say minor things stating their annoyance. I'm talking to the people that have insanely huge freak outs over minor circumstances. See what I did there?

Ever since the season started, I have had people on Twitter tweeting me about how bad the Indians are, how their year is over, etc. In April. I repeat, in April. Now how silly does that sound? The Tribe ended April with a winning record and first place. Yet at the beginning of April I already had people telling me they were horrible and that the year was already over just as it had begun.

I don't see this strictly on social media, either. Some days I'll walk into work after a loss and have coworkers telling me how disappointing the Indians are and how they need to step up their game. Give me a break! This is the defending AL champions you're talking about, and a team that just went to the World Series last year.

I'm not writing this article to be negative, and I'm not trying to yell at anyone or call anyone out. I just simply want Indians fans to take a deep breath and understand that this year has just begun. We have many months to go. There's no way of knowing what's to come, so relax and enjoy the ride!

We're going to be just fine.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
